HAKAFA means "encirclement."
We are a congregation of people
who choose to have no building,
no board of directors,
and no fund-raising.
Our CIRCLE has been growing
for over 30 years.
But as we grow, our intimate,
caring, and welcoming
atmosphere remains.


New announcements are posted each Wednesday.


Read the current issue of the monthly Circle.


Watch our worship services over the internet.


Check out volunteer opportunities & sign-up.


We are collecting men’s hats and gloves/mittens to be given to people who are homeless.

Please bring new hats and gloves / mittens (men’s sizes M and L) to the box that will be outside the Community Hall on Sunday mornings during Religious School on: 

November 17 and December 8 & 15

Please contact Barb Scott with any questions.

We will conclude the evening with an opportunity to create Shabbat Shalom cards that we will send to congregations around the world.
